Borla S-Type Install Questions

Hey, I have a 14' GT and after a lot of research decided to go with the Borla S-Type Axle Backs. I ordered them last night and they are scheduled to come in early next week. Are these hard to install or should I have someone do it? Also, my main concern is damage to my bumper because I know the tips are larger than the stock ones. Is heat an issue with these or do you have to do anything to the rear bumper?Also, I paid $640 shipped, was this a good deal (saw them on AM for $755)? Thanks I look forward to getting these as they are the first thing (besides floor mats) that I have done to my Mustang.

The install is not bad at all, I've never installed an exhaust b4 this and it went great (car had 800 miles when I did it so I was nervous). Tips do not get hot to the point of damaging the bumper. Something to make sure b4 u do anything is make sure u got a 13-14 muffler because the 11-12 stick out more.

Do you have the stock lower valence on yours? I have the same exhaust and have the CS rear splitter and it fits just fine. I have had no problems with heat. Install is a breeze, once you figure out how to take the first one off and put the Borlas on the second one will go by fast. $640 is about the average price I've seen people get them for, not a bad deal.

I got them off of autoanything.com. I put in my vehicle info and it said these would be a direct fit. The website says
Bolt-in exhaust kit requires no cutting or welding
2.75" Pipe
Two single inlet, single outlet S-Type mufflers
4.5" Round, rolled edge, angle cut polished tips

Yeah the install seems pretty straight forward. The only thing I am worried about is adjusting the tips without the heat getting to the rear valence/bumper. Also, are ramps/jack stands required to install?

Bumpers should be fine. I would use ramps or jacks, makes it much easier.

Thanks I think I will invest in a set of Rhino Ramps to work on the car.

Build a set. Cost me maybe $30 in lumber, and Home Depot cut the lumber to my dimensions. I used 2x12's to fit my 275s and you can make them as high as you want for less than Rhino ramps. I feel much more confident with my wood ramps over some plastic ones.

Thanks but I don't have much wood working experience.

Over built the hell out of them but gives a decent amount of room to work around. Yeah they are a bit long but it's not too bad to work around. Made them so that I know they'll work down the road when I lower my stang. I can always beef them up and make them taller if need be too

I got an email from autoanything.com saying that it shipped and should be here Thursday. I can't wait to get these on the GT.

My Borlas came today. I won't have time to put them on until this weekend, but had to open the box. These look very nice and even came with a free hat.

Getting ready to install Borla Touring axle backs on my '13 GT. Is there a gasket where the Borla attaches to the OEM pipe that needs to be replaced? The installation videos/instructions don't mention one.

No I have watched a lot of install videos and they all show you reusing all of your stock parts. All you need according to Borla is WD-40 on the hangers and brackets, some basic tools and ramps/jack stands. I will be installing this weekend.

No gaskets needed.

Ok got the axle backs in! The only tricky part was the clamps were spot welded to the OEM mufflers via a small metal strap. I had to cut that off with some tin snips. I found it easier to just unbolt the front hanger brackets from the frame, slip the old mufflers out and the new ones in, then just bolt the hanger bracket back up again.

Nice. Yep, I did the same thing with those brackets, made it a lot easier. I forgot about that spot weld, I just kept twisting the clamp until it came off, ha.
